Award-winning digital agency Purpose Media is celebrating after adding another trophy to its collection.
The South Normanton-based website developer and online marketing specialist won the outstanding growth performance award at the East Midlands Chamber’s 2016 Derbyshire Business Awards.
The firm won following a solid period of expansion over 2015 and 2016, which saw it launch a new creative arm after acquiring certain assets from former design agency Revolver Revolver and a new video division following its merger with Mansfield-based A Star Media earlier this year.
The moves saw Purpose Media double its employee headcount and turnover in just nine months and transform from being a developer of e-commerce websites with Sage integration into a full-service digital agency which now also offers digital marketing, creative design, video production and PR.
Matt Wheatcroft, Purpose Media managing director, said: “It was a fantastic night and great to walk away with yet another prestigious award.
“It’s been a great 12 months for us, which has seen us double in size, both in terms of headcount and turnover.
“The changes we have made have enabled us to fully solidify our position as a full-service digital agency dedicated to providing SMEs across the region with creative digital solutions to help them achieve their online sales goals.”
